Really appreciate all the suggestions, I’m going to poke around for a bit and see what sizes are available in the stuff recommended!

Ok weird question. I'd like to start getting more things for my dad, but I have no idea how to size anything for him since his body type is very different from my own.

He's 6ft, about 160-170lbs, long arms. His normal Macy's sizes are gonna be M or slim L. For shirts he's usually a 16-16.5 35-36ish. Pants and jeans usually 34-37 x 32. I think he'd be a 42L in suiting, but he hasn't worn one in so long that I don't really know anymore. I recently got him a PWVC coat in a size 5 and that seemed to fit well.

Would anyone within a similar size range help out a homie and tell me their size for popular NMWA products/brands? He's not gonna be into the loose fit stuff, just generic CM casual fits.

Ideally I'd like to get him some interesting stuff from Monitaly, GRP, Schneider and the like, and he can wear it in boring ways.
That's pretty close to me. I can type my sizes in several NMWA brands later tonight.

How to size the Inglese linen butcher stripes vs their regular cotton shirts? I need a 40 in the linen, but not sure if that would be cut too large for the regular shirts.

@troika sizes in spoilers below. Happy to answer questions.

I'm pretty close to your dad, but I do sometimes size up or adjust for my chest and shoulders (notes accordingly).

Formosa
50R

Carrara
Would be 52 (I need some adjustments for balance, etc.)

Inglese
41 is a little tight in the chest and shoulders but otherwise right. So pretty much all my shirts are MTM.

Monitaly
L in shirts.

GRP
V or VI in the knit henleys (VI is better in the chest and shoulders).

Schneider
V or VI in knits, VI in shirts (needed the extra room in the shoulders and and chest), V or VI in outerwear.

Glenn's Denim
34 in work trousers.

Inis Meain
L

Kaptain Sunshine
34 trousers

Rota
50 in the higher rise. 52 in regular, with the waist taken in.

Portugese Flannel
L

TSS
3 in trousers, 4 in outerwear.

@sebastian mcfox makes me simultaneously feel both stoked I preordered the RAF Irvin and also sad I won’t look half as cool
I have definitely bought items inspired by a McFox picture and then returned them when I realized no clothing will ever make me look that dashing

Since I couldn’t afford this ride I just leaned on it. Also finally found some off white denim.
